Abstract : Throughout the early nineties, the Navy has downsized in an unprecedented manner primarily as a result of the end of the Cold War era. An initial analysis of how such downsizing measures have occurred within the Department of the Navy is undertaken by studying the Headquarters Department of Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). As the largest naval shore command, much valuable information can be extracted for possible guidance to other commands and military officers attempting to further reduce their organizational structure. A model of public sector force reduction decisions is introduced to provide a basis for comparison and to facilitate learning from NAVSEA Headquarters experiences.
